Small, but definitely NOT terrible

I am drawn to your big round eyes. I am amazed at your small size, 
you seem to be as big as my palm or perhaps even smaller. 

I am curious at your appearance, you are a primate that is for sure but you have a long tail that reminds me of a rodent. I am wondering what you are thinking or feeling. Do you wonder why people look at you with awe, amazement, or wonder? Are you bored? Are you hurt that you are in a contained environment and not in the wild? Do you miss your own kind? These are the thoughts and questions that goes on in my mind during a close encounter with a tarsier (the world's smallest monkey). 

In as much as I like to see them at close up, I feel a pang of guilt because some of them are exploited for tourist attraction. I'm glad that our government has taken conservation action for the species' survival. In fact, there are only a few tarsiers left in some Bohol tourist spots compared to years ago when these small primates are seen almost anywhere. I'm glad that I have a chance for another glimpse of this endangered specie and capture his expressions.
